Requesting Accommodations for the First Time
To request accommodations for the first time, students must meet with Disability Services staff to discuss their accessibility concerns or barriers and provide appropriate documentation. Students can request a meeting with DS staff by submitting the DS Info Appointment Form
We usually need a document from a doctor, therapist, or school staff stating that you have a disability. If you can send us this information before your meeting, we will read it before talking with you and get you the help you need faster. If you do not have paperwork to share with us yet, we can still meet with you and help you get the information we need.
- If you have a physical or mental health condition, we may ask for information from a medical doctor or therapist. You can give your medical professional the Verification of Disability Form to complete and return to our office.
- High school Individualized Education Programs (IEP) or 504 Plans can be shared and should include the most recent evaluation report.
- DS staff will review the evaluation report to determine if there is enough information to determine disability status at the college level. IEPs and 504 Plans are written to meet requirements under the Individuals with Disabilities Educational Act (IDEA), which does not apply at the college level.
Students Currently Using Disability Services
Accommodations must be requested each semester. If you are currently registered with disability services and would like to request accommodations for next semester, please complete the Accommodation Plan Update Form.
